Mission

The University of Maryland Clinical Informatics Group is concerned with the optimal use of information and technology to improve individual health, deliver safer and more efficient patient care, and enhance access to biomedical knowledge. It is led by an interdisciplinary team of physicians and informaticians dedicated to research, education, consulting, and mentoring on the application of information technology to the practice of medicine. The mission of the group is to focus on computational systems that expand the scope of clinical medicine, have a strong theoretical basis in computer science, are of strategic importance to the University of Maryland Medical Center, and encourage greater collaboration between the School of Medicine and other University of Maryland Institutions.
